Center For Rural Affairs Executive Director Is Leaving

 

Center for Rural Affairs Executive Director Chuck Hassebrook says he’s leaving as leader of the group after serving for 36 years.  Hassebrook who’s been the Centers Director for the past 17 years says he wants to concentrate on his run for Nebraska Governor.

Hassebrook says he’s leaving the job effective September 1 and that the group will be in good hands as Assistant Executive Director Brian DePew has been named as his replacement.

He says running for Governor is more than a full time job and that he intends to devote all of his energies in that direction.
